★☆Presenting the Grand Prix and Tamashii Award Winners for the 5th CON-CAN Movie Festival!!☆★

Running in parallel with the Audience Awards from May, 2008, the 5th CON-CAN Competition has finally come to a conclusion. The best 20 movies were first chosen by the preliminary juries in September and then from these 20, the Grand Prix and 2 Tamashii Awards were decided by the International Jury members in October. We are proud to present you with this year’s nominees and a big congratulation to the winning directors.

Furthermore, all the movies that participated in the 5th CON-CAN Movie Festival were of high quality and the judging process was tough all the way throughout. Hence, in addition to the Grand Prix and Tamashii awards, we have decided to bestow 1 “Special Mention” which we will also announce.

The 5th CON-CAN Award Ceremony will be held in Tokyo on December 17 and the Grand Prix winners, Cagla Zencirci & Guillaume Giovanetti have been invited to attend this special event. The details of the Award Ceremony will be posted on the website afterwards so don’t miss it!

The 5th CON-CAN Nominees are presented below. CONGRATULATIONS!!
